keeping cool


it has been hot hot hot this week! 
 today's weather is perfect for homemade popsicles and hiding out inside...

yogurt//fruit popsicles
* i made honeydew melon, blueberry lemon, raspberry, and peanut butter

 blend plain yogurt, honey, and a splash of vanilla- set aside 
(*note- i don't use measurements...everything is added to taste. 
make sure to dip your finger in and sample a bit before moving on!)

separately, blend the flavor of popsicle fruit you want with a bit of milk 
( i use vanilla almond milk) and a sprinkle of sugar or honey. 
(for the peanut butter i used a couple of spoonfuls mixed with the almond milk and blended)

pour yogurt and fruit blends into popsicle molds (a little of each at a time) 
and swirl around with a skewer to mix. 
add popsicle stick and freeze overnight or for a few hours...

(to make the striped popsicle, pour a layer of fruit in the mold then let it freeze for about 30-45 min. 
then pour a layer of yogurt blend and add your popsicle stick. refreeze. 
repeat layering/freeze step until you fill the mold. continue freezing normally from there)

 3 cheers for something cool on a hot day!
 now lets see if i can not eat them all before bub gets home from school...

  2. Oh my goodness, if it were even remotely sunny or warm in New York I'd be making these immediately. I guess I'll wait till warmer weather comes (along with strawberries from the farmer's market...I'm imagining a balsamic-infused berry pop!)

  7. Those look delicious!! Thanks so much for sharing how you made them. I just make the same popcicles over and over, my kiddos fav. yogurt, just poured into a mold, and leftover fruit smoothies poured into a mold. :) I guess I like simple, but I may take the time to make something new because of this post!
